"Firm in texture and vibrant in flavor, with bright cherry, black currant and sage flavors picking up a green olive note as the finish pushes past the tannins. Best from 2014 through 2019. 1,406 cases made." (WS)

"Bright ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, blackberry and licorice. Tight, dry and penetrating, with high-pitched notes of licorice, herbs and mint oil. Shows good intensity of flavor but lacks generosity and give. Finishes with slightly drying tannins. Will this wine soften in bottle before it loses its fruit?" (IWC)

"This pure Cabernet from a lush vintage comes together in a wonderfully supple, dense, and complex mix of red and black fruits, coffee, mocha and toast. There is no part of this wine that doesn’t yell “delicious.” It’s very satisfying, long and luscious, with plenty of life ahead, but why wait? " (WE)

Winery Note4s:
The 15th vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon from Dunham Cellars brings to mind a Dutch oven blackberry cobbler with cinnamon, clove, and of course, a scoop of vanilla ice cream! With great backbone and structure, this wine stands the test of a classic Dunham wine: great aging potential, yet approachable now. This wine is definitely one you want to have in your cellar for that special occasion! ~ Eric Dunham and Daniel Wampfler, Winemaking Team
